GenPrime is a very simple discovery algorithm to find prime numbers.
This particular variant is a programming language benchmark, using simple arithmetic, loops, and operators. This essentially acts as a stress test for the most fundamental features of any programming language, showing the deeply seated weaknesses of interpreted languages. There are currently implementations in C, C++, Java, Objective-C, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby.
